Squaremeal Review of MOC Kitchen ?

There’s no missing the trend for Vietnamese food around the capital, and the opening of MOC Kitchen marks another stage in the cuisine’s growth away from its Shoreditch heartland. Tucked into the arches under Charing Cross Station, this modern, informal Vietnamese restaurant-cum-street food outlet is already doing a roaring trade. The popularity is hardly surprising: there’s something deeply attractive about cooking that’s full of bright, vibrant, natural flavours and colours, that’s fresh and zingy, but generally low in calories. Drop in for the familiar – slow-cooked beef pho, spring and summer rolls, and crispy salt and pepper squid – or try something slightly more unusual: braised catfish in salted caramel sauce, for instance, or sizzling wok-fried goat. You’ll be hard-pressed to spend £15 per person here, or half that if you’re ordering a takeaway.

Authentic street food in Charing Cross

Moc Kitchen reminded me of my travels in Vietnam where the street food was plentiful and deeply deeply delicious. Moc Kitchen have all the favourites like Pho and rolls but there are some other quite unusual dishes like the lemongrass beef rolled in wild betel leaves - juicy, tender and filling. The aubergine and tofu hotpot was rich and meaty even though there was no meat in it. All the dishes are full of Vietnemese herbs chosen for their health benefits and flavour by the owner - at least that's...

    Ms Food Blogger :: Review; MOC Kitchen, City, London | Ms Food Blogger

    If you’ve been keeping an eye on the latest food trends to hit London, then you must know all about the upsurge in popularity of Asian cuisine. In particular Vietnamese, widely regarded as one of the healthiest styles of cooking there is. With it’s use of fresh meats, vegetables and straight-from-the-garden herbs combined with very little oils or fats, it is no wonder Vietnamese is proving so popular on the clean eating scene.

    There have been a number of restaurants springing up and I had heard about MOC Kitchen, initially, from some other foodies. Knowing that they wouldn’t steer me wrong, I accepted an...

    Of all the regions I have 'travelled' to on my round the world foodie tour of London, I like Asia the best. So when I was invited to come and review Vietnamese MOC Kitchen in Charing Cross, I could only answer with a big fat 'Yes'.

    My friend and I had picked a very rainy evening to go and eat at MOC Kitchen and when we both arrived there cold and wet, the welcome we received couldn't have been warmer.
